To build a strong and sturdy pillar, it is important to know how to use QUIKRETE Core Fill Grout. QUIKRETE Core Fill Grout is made of concrete blocks, and comes in two different grades – Coarse and Fine. After setting the footing, you must pour mortar into the drilled holes and spread it evenly around the base of the column. This will make the column balanced.

QUIKRETE Core Fill Grout – Coarse

QUIKRETE Core Fill Grout is a Portland cement based, flowable grout that can be pumped or poured into masonry block cores. It meets ASTM C476 performance requirements. QUIKRETE Core Fill Grout is best suited for filling masonry block cores without segregation. It’s a versatile product for a variety of applications, including building a concrete block pillar.

The proportion and performance specification in ASTM C476 are critical to a successful QUIKRETE Concrete Block Pillar. The coarse mix should contain at least two and a half times the cementitious materials. The fine mix should have an s/a ratio of 1 to 2. These requirements correspond to the s/a ratios of most self-consolidating concrete mix designs.
